The safety of our community is our highest priority at Georgia State University. Out of caution regarding the current coronavirus situation, all gallery events and exhibitions are being rescheduled and/or moved online for a virtual gallery experience.Please see below for a round up of our spring virtual gallery programming!


MFA Graduating Thesis Exhibitions

These exhibitions will be postponed until further notice. Because we cannot yet physically exhibit the work of our graduate students, we have featured their work online with a microsite and social media profiles. To see their work, please visit: 


Student Juried Exhibition

Each year, The Ernest G. Welch School of Art & Design at Georgia State University hosts a Student Juried Exhibition during which students receive awards, scholarships, and prizes. Due to unplanned circumstances, our exhibition has been moved online where all visitors can engage with the work virtually. The gallery hosted a live, online opening during which Director Joseph Peragine announced awards and visitors voted for a People’s Choice.

We would like to give a special thank you to juror, Shannon Morris, Gallery Director and Curator, Mary S. Byrd Gallery, Augusta University who worked with us through the challenges and lended a great prestige to the exhibition. We would also like to thank sponsors of the show—Binders Art Supplies, the High Museum of Art, Atlanta Botanical Garden, Burnaway, MOCA GA—and all of the generous donors of the school who have made many of these student scholarships possible.

To learn more about the juror and the students prizes and scholarships awarded, visit our follow up press release. To view the virtual gallery online, visit the link here.


BFA Graduating Thesis Exhibition

The culminating exhibition of our undergraduate experience has also be moved online for a virtual exhibition, but will no longer be mandatory for the students graduating. The students will be invited to exhibit their work at the next Open Studio we can safely host. Until then, the work by participating students can be view by visiting the virtual gallery.


Exlucis BFA Photo Exhibition

The undergraduate photography club, ExLucis organized a virtual exhibition, juried by artist Myra Green. The exhibition, titled DiverseCITY, featured student photographers in Atlanta. To view art work, visit the virtual gallery.


MFA Sculpture Open Studio Brunch & Iron Pour

(Formerly scheduled for April 4) The event has been postponed until further notice, but work by former and current sculpture students were and will be shared and celebrated on our instagram, @gsu_artdesign.


Our community of students, faculty, and alumni has always been marked by its outstanding perseverance and grit. Creativity and its expression does not stop when tragedy hits, but instead becomes all the more important to our shared experience. It is during this time that we want to celebrate the hard work that our artists and designers have put in this year, and to feature the work they will continue to pursue during this tough climate. All updates will be posted on our website and social media—we encourage you to tune in, share, and support.
